#109: With the Stroke of a Pen Claim Your Life - Jane Blaufus

While I was at She's Connected Blogger Conference this weekend, I was given an opportunity to read and review this book I'm about to tell you about. I have to tell you, this is the most powerful book I have ever read.
Ok, so the cover is not what pulled me into this book. I hadn't even really got a good look at the cover when I knew I had to read it, and thanks to another blogger, Mrs. Z , I was able to.

I was listening to the publicist for this book talk about how she hounded her husband in the car ride home from a trip, and thought, "it must be important". I listened to her describe how it can help you fulfill your natural desire to protect your future and protect the ones you love.

This book is exactly that and more. It brought out every single emotion in me, but what it brought out most, is my natural need to secure my future and those of the ones I love.

No one likes to talk about death, and the after life, but we have to. It is a natural thing that we must do like securing for retirement. This book is a great guideline to do all those things that are difficult to do.

I definitely feel I need to get a better hold of my future. Sadly, I realize how unprepared my after-life is going to be, and in turn, I leave a lot in the laps of those I love. Unless I make a change. I have been discussing this book with the hubster from the start. By page seven I was in tears and absorbing every single word off the page. By page twenty I was laughing and deeply connected to the stories. Because of it, we will be making a life change and preparing for our whole life and not just the now.

Crazy to think how a person sharing their most tragic story can open ones' eyes. I wish I had an unlimited supply of copies to hand out to people too. This is one of those books that once you read, you'll have to share it with everyone.  The message definitely needs to be heard, so please get yourself a copy today! Go to The Blaufus Group website for information.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
